Shares are available in an impressive four-year-old son of Midnight Legend.
He is out of the talented Milan mare Buxom, who won her first two starts in bumpers and also ran very respectably in Listed company. She went on to prove a useful and consistent performer for Jamie Snowden over hurdles, winning a two-mile handicap at Huntingdon.
This exciting youngster has been backed and ridden away, and is shortly set to follow his mother into training with Jamie, whose Lambourn yard continues on an upward curve. Shareholders will be invited to come and watch the horse develop on the gallops and making use of the exquisite facilities in the famous Berkshire racing village.
If his pedigree is any guide there is good reason to be excited as to this gelding's future prospects.
Not only was the dam a talented bumper and hurdles winner, but she is a sibling of the 131-rated chaser and seven-time winner West Of The Edge, whilst the next generation of the family features the Grade-2 placed novice hurdlers Woodys Deep Ocean and Rev It Up - the first-named gaining that black-type behind none other than Kicking King. The extended family also includes the Grade-2 placed chaser Intac and the Listed-winning hurdler Sister Superior, whilst Milan is the broodmare sire of Grade-1 winning chaser Coney Island.
The late Midnight Legend was a high-class dual-purpose performer during his racing days, and has gone on to carve out a tremendous legacy as a NH sire. His most famous offspring is of course the Gold Cup winner Sizing John, and this season has seen his Warriors Tale win the Grand Sefton over the National fences at Aintree, Midnight Shadow take the Grade-2 Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham and The Two Amigos continue his sequence of wins in the Sussex National. In short, he remains as relevant as ever almost three years after his death.
With impressive physical scope and an appealing pedigree, this affordable opportunity to get involved with an exciting jumping prospect must not be missed.
